Phil & Mel In The Morning

Weekdays 6:00AM-10:00AM

There are some things that should be done privately. Using the toilet is an obvious example, but other activities we associate with the bathroom should, for the most part, also be kept out of public view. Alas, that is not always the case.

Many people seem to live with the attitude that, sure, they could restrict their personal hygiene routine to the bathroom, but why should they? Is it really necessary to groom oneself at home or in a hotel room when a bus, train, restaurant, or some other public place will suffice?

The worst case of public grooming I’ve witnessed was a fellow airline passenger plucking her nose hairs. Perhaps if she hadn’t been given an aisle seat, it would have only nauseated the person sitting next to her. Instead, most of economy class was grossed out.

Have you ever seen anyone put their personal care regimen on display for all to enjoy? If not, here are a few examples:

Shaving…

Brushing teeth…

Flossing…

Clipping toenails…

And who could ever forget this woman caught shaving her legs in a hotel pool?
